Tirana, Albania

About Tirana:

Tirana is the capital of Albania and has undergone a tremendous transformation since the fall of communism.  Not too long ago you would find the drab, grey buildings so prevalent in communist countries, but today these have been changed to brightly painted buildings, public squares and the streets are crowded with people on bicycles.  What makes the city so charming is the fact that is not yet over-run with tourists, so you can actually get to meet some of the residents.
There are many Catholic churches in the city, as well as a Catholic university/hospital.
